about

Continuing on their journey ,, their first date; they encounter a slick but vacuous local Parliamentary candidate who fakes interest in their concerns to try and win their votes. A knowing glance between them suggests they know his real agenda.

lyrics

The man of the people

The man of the people will always ley you down
the man of the people, he may come to your town
He'll get in the way, he'll knock on you door
when he's got enough, you won't see him anymore
the man of the people is never all he seems

the man of the people will tell you what you need
the man of the people will say you're a friend indeed
when the going gets tough, and you look around
he's not where you saw him, he's gone to ground
the man of the people is never what he seems

he tells you what you need him for he will tell you everything you need
& tell a lie as a half baked truth , saying I am everything you see

the man of the people is gonna bring you down
the man of the people is indifferent to your fate
the man of the people won't give, but he will take
& he'll make out he's like me & you
it don't take too long to find he's a stranger to the truth
the man of the people is never all he seems
He's the man of the people
